Established in April 2001, the Centre for the History of Medicine and Disease (CHMD) is a University-approved Research Centre that provides a focus for cutting-edge, interdisciplinary research and postgraduate education in the histories of medicine, health, disease, medical ethics and science. It is linked to the Department of Philosophy and the Wolfson Research Institute for Health and Wellbeing and has members from several further departments with interests in history of medicine, including Archaeology, History, Modern Languages and Cultures, and English.
We're a collaboration of 44 specialist centres, academies and projects, with over 40 undergraduate courses and postgraduate programmes. Unbound from clinic, we frame health differently. Our vision for health is for people to thrive in the places they live.
